I went here with family on a Sunday evening. The place was quite packed, many people lined up for take out, and plenty waiting for the Smorgasbord. It seems the place clears out after 630PM, and is packed between 5PM-6PM, so make a reservation. The...More

Great, as per usual. Nice fresh hot assortment of delicious Chinese Food. Today they had my favourite breaded shrimp. Location is a bit far out but well worth the trip. Lots of free parking. Across the road from the ocean and a park.

I have been going to the Driftwood for 14 years and so it pains me to say the owners are doing a poor job when it comes to their food. We were there two weeks ago on a Friday night at 6:30 pm. The smorg,...More
